Innovation and new product development

Our innovation and product development result in award-winning products and we are proud to demonstrate and share our experience and knowledge.

We continually invest in new technology, spend many years developing our products in the lab and in the field to ensure performance, hold ongoing in-house training for our manufacturing operatives to promote quality of manufacture and are closely involved in developing slip resistance test methods.

  • To continue our commitment to industry development and high quality customer service, we have developed a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses focusing on the main issues surrounding floor, wall and door products, plus their impact on the wellbeing of the people using the spaces where they are installed
  • We invented Altro Easyclean Technology for ease of cleaning without compromising on sustained slip resistance
  • To ensure our products’ performance we spend many years developing and testing our products in the lab and in the field – for example, Altro Aquarius was in development for seven years before launch
  • Altro have reduced clapper card size (sample books) that helps reduce CO2 footprint and resources in production and transport
  • We have now refreshed Altro Cantata and introduced new Altro Wood adhesive-free – two more ranges of adhesive-free, 100% recyclable and sustainable flooring
